This pedagogical Note shows how the component pieces play out in a calculation that can readily be generalized to most any neutrino-nucleon semi-leptonic cross section involving scattering into a two-body final state. The designated target is the neutrino-nucleon quasi-elastic scattering formulas of Llewellyn Smith's 1972 review article on neutrino interactions. the Llewellyn Smith (LS) formulation is notably clear, compact, and free of errors, consequently it is the foundational work usually cited in experimental and phenomenological treatments of neutrino and antineutrino quasielastic scattering.
